Child of Light Gets Cirque de Soleil For Music
Ubisoft continues in its endeavors to make Child of Light a truly unique experience. Earlier today the developer announced that it’s partnering up with Cirque de Soleil and Montreal-based singer-songwriter Coeur de Pirate to “further develop Child of Light into a well-rounded work of art.”
Musician Coeur de Pirate has composed the soundtrack for the game’s world of Lemuria, a score which Ubisoft called as being both “intimate and nostalgic.”
Patrick Plourde, creative director at Ubisoft Montreal, was all praise about the local composer, saying that her music is “fresh, romantic, and optimistic, a perfect match for what we wanted to express with Child of Light.”
Speaking about her time with the studio, Coeur de Pirate said that the experience was great. When she was brought in, there wasn’t any material to start with. Hence Ubisoft gave her complete freedom to create the soundtrack from scratch. “This is wonderful to see something come to life like this.”
“Videogames invites players to be immersed in virtual worlds and no one is better to create immersive and magical experiences than the artists of the Cirque du Soleil,” said Patrick Plourde. “So to be able to collaborate with them to achieve Child of Light’s ambition to create a playable poem was a dream come true.”
Child of Light will be available on April 30th for $14.99 on PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
